Taiwan welcomes mainland investment in gaming market

(Taiwan).- Mainland China-based online game companies are brewing foraying into Taiwan as the first step for their global expansion, encouraged by the latter's latest announcement to open its gaming industry to the former.


aiwan-based online game companies are also making preparations to welcome their mainland counterparts. For example, Soft-World International Corporation plans to enhance its R&D to meet the upcoming challenge. In recent years, mainland companies began licensing Taiwan counterparts to operate their proprietary online games. There were only a few investment cases between both sides.

Last year, Beijing Perfect World Co., Ltd. inked two agreements with InterServ, a Taiwan game developer, to acquire the copyrights of two games and two R&D center respectively situated in Shanghai and Chengdu from the latter.
